Lynchburg Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It is real. And in few other conditions is it more real than in spine-related pain conditions. The spine is the support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Palmer Chiropractic Center knows it, also. Lynchburg back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain effectively relieves both body and mind pain to let our patients find an agreeable quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is lessened with our Cox® Technic System of decompression.

MIND AND BODY: DEPRESSION IN BACK PAIN PATIENTS

Top causes of disability globally include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, exemplified how anxiety and depression affect a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients feel negatively affects their overall well-being. (1) A new review of medical studies connects these two issues, too. Anxiety and cervical/lumbar disc herniation, mood/anxiety and lower bone mineral density in men, chronic low back pain and depression, life satisfaction improvement and bone loss prevention in postmenopausal women, quality of life deterioration and increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Palmer Chiropractic Center offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to alleviate pain and give control of it in the hands of our Lynchburg patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Palmer Chiropractic Center is here for our Lynchburg back pain patients every step of the way. Using anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer depressed back pain patients want. They are shown to raise the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs stop the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system. (3) We all need clear minds to deal with life with and without back pain.

THE DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY OF BACK PAIN

Depression and anxiety are states of mind most everyone contends with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety frequently go together with their pain experience. Logically, higher levels of depression often result from more pain and a lower sense of personal control of pain and overall health. More anxiety often comes from deeper beliefs about negative effects of illness, negative emotional views of the illness, and depression. These conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Palmer Chiropractic Center to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is beneficial for the body. That’s a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Lynchburg chiropractic patients and your Lynchburg chiropractor – the more exact curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new study reports that symptoms of depression were reduced in such adults who used exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out superior. Both indicated promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Palmer Chiropractic Center makes sure that Lynchburg chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
